News happens everywhere, from small towns to
big cities across the United States. America's
News enables library patrons to pinpoint
information on people, issues and events in the
local area or around the country. This comprehensive resource offers tens of millions
of current and archived full-text articles from
news sources nationwide in a single, fully searchable
online database. It includes the complete electronic editions of more than 1,890 U.S.
news sources and news video clips—with 85% of these sources not available in any other library database.
An ideal resource for many types of research
Librarians recognize newspaper collections as a valuable and widely used resource.
America’s News provides patrons with authoritative, staff-written coverage of
local and national topics, along with specific articles, obituaries, statistics, video clips, quotations,
facts, analysis and much more. With unlimited access to America’s News from
all library workstations—and remote access 24/7 for most titles—patrons can freely
search, browse, print, save and email full-text articles without a per-article fee. Beyond,
America’s News can be enhanced with the addition of a variety of specialized,
cross-searchable news and information resources that address specific areas of interest.
One-click access to valuable local perspectives
America’s News features an intuitive interface that lets patrons use a U.S. map to
quickly select and search one or more local news sources, a group of titles across a state
or region, specific papers nationwide or the entire collection. This interface can be customized to reflect the demographics the library serves, ensuring that patrons can
easily access specific news sources in the library’s collection. Also, patrons can search
articles by headline, name, topic, date, author and section, with the option to view
results by date or relevance ranking. The powerful search engine retrieves hundreds or
even thousands of articles on a particular subject in seconds.
Enhanced interface improves search results
With NewsBank’s streamlined new interface, users can pinpoint useful information and
navigate quickly and efficiently through millions of articles. Additionally, there are two
versions of the interface, one in English and the other in Spanish—an ideal feature for
Spanish speakers or students of a second language. America’s News offers MARC
records that enable librarians to link directly to each newspaper’s search page, along
